After chance at history, another frustrating loss

ST. PETERSBURG -- Perfection, imperfection. That's baseball. Wednesday afternoon, that was Rays baseball -- again. In one moment, All-Star Rays pitcher Chris Archer was king of the world: 19 Detroit Tigers outs into a perfect game at the Trop, outpitching Justin Verlander,

Tigers 2, Rays 1: Vintage Justin Verlander wins pitching duel against Chris Archer

And the Tigers offense gave Verlander just enough run support. Justin Verlander is back. A three-game losing streak is snapped. In what turned out to be a pitching duel between Verlander and Chris Archer, the Detroit Tigers offense scrapped together just enough run support to avoid a sweep, winning 2-1 over the Tampa Bay Rays. To be fair, Verlander has looked like he was back for a while, but not like this. He absolutely dominated the Rays. He made one mistake, one that landed in the seats for a solo home run to Asdrubal Cabrera. And with Archer making light work of the Tigers offense for...

Justin Verlander helps Jeff Jones camouflage his pep talk

Here, let me help you Justin Verlander pitched a gem today. To try and grab a run back, Tampa Bay sent Joey Butler up as a pinch hitter which prompted Jeff Jones to head to the mound to discuss how to handle the new player. Verlander decided to have a little fun. With the way he was pitching, I don't think he really needed the advice. @Buster_ESPN Shhhh pic.twitter.com/xa9AITxgXz — Angry Paws (@angrypaws) July 29, 2015 Verlander went on the strike out the side in the 8th.

No-hitter alert: Tampa Bay's Chris Archer perfect through five innings against Detroit Tigers

Justin Verlander and Rays starter Chris Archer have worked five perfect innings apiece and have traded zeros heading into the sixth inning Wednesday afternoon at Tropicana Field. ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Tampa Bay's Chris Archer has been perfect through five innings today. And Justin Verlander of the Detroit Tigers has nearly matched him. Verlander and Archer worked four perfect innings apiece and traded zeros heading into the fifth inning. But Rays shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera broke up Verlander's no-hit bid with a solo home run with two outs in the fifth...

Game 2015.97: Detroit at Boston

I don’t have the numbers in front of me, but if Alfredo Simon gives up less than 4 runs today it will be the first time since a miracle. His ERA over his last 7 games is 8.64, which somehow ranks him behind Verlander, Feliz, and Rondon, who could maybe combine to keep the LL WS team […]

Red Sox 2, Tigers 1: Offense absent again, spoiling Justin Verlander's stellar outing

Justin Verlander and Rick Porcello dueled to a stalemate, but the Red Sox pushed across a run in the 11th inning to win the series opener. For whatever reason, the Detroit Tigers just can't put everything together this season. Justin Verlander gave the Tigers a dominant starting performance, their second in as many days, but a lackluster offense couldn't plate enough runs and the Boston Red Sox won a 2-1 game in walkoff fashion. The Tigers opened the scoring in the top of the third inning. Jose Iglesias led off the inning with a double off of the Green Monster in left field, then advanced...

Reunited and it feels so weird: Justin Verlander faces Rick Porcello

They spent six years as teammates and now, both having difficult seasons, they face each other. Since 2009, Rick Porcello and Justin Verlander were constants in the Detroit Tigers' rotation on a steadily changing team where players come for a few years and exit, prospects never get too comfortable, and Dave Dombrowski trades everything not nailed down. We grew accustomed to Rick and Verlander in the rotation, and this is one reason why many people were not excited when the Tigers traded Porcello during the offseason (in addition to the obvious concern that thinning the rotation puts more...

Could Tigers' Justin Verlander become the next AJ Burnett?

Justin Verlander is struggling with his fastball command. Could he make a switch similar to the one A.J. Burnett made with the Pirates? Many people like to compare Justin Verlander to CC Sabathia. In their prime, both were in Cy Young races with high-velocity fastballs. They both signed big contracts, then proceeded to lose the velocity and their effectiveness while struggling with injuries. However, there is potentially a better comparison: A.J. Burnett. While the Pirates' righthander has not had quite as glorified a career as Verlander, he had a similar repertoire and high-velocity...
